Nice! Looks easy and pretty.

My husband used to paint when he was younger, then life responsibility. He is fighting leukemia and is back to using inks and pencils. So I would give them to him, but if I used them I would start with the pineapple and move on to other fruits and vegetables.

I have not done any media painting yet or even heard of glaze pens but this looks like so much fun. Reminds me of my childhood days and how relaxing it was to bring out the paint colors and a paint book. So stress free. This is a great way to spend time with your girlfriends or even your family and you have a great picture to share or each person make their own. I love the pineapple but I think I will make some flowers in the rain. So peaceful. Thanks for super project.

Love the pineapple idea! Thank you for sharing!

I would love to make a print of bamboo leaves and stocks.

New media to try, fun!

I would do pineapples and birds. thank you for the giveaway. God bless

These look like fun products to try. I'm currently painting Chickadees in pine trees.

I would love to try the pineapple design for my kitchen. A great new craft to learn.

I would draw pictures with my great niece.

never used them would be a great time to start

What a cool watercolor project, I just might try it, I plan to do some watercoloring on cards,

This would be a wonderful set to own. I like to paint various subjects, but mostly abstract and impressionistic landscapes. I also like tho experiment with various effects, like adding salt to parts of the painting. What a wonderful prize!

I'd probably do flowers of some kind. I tend to copy more than imagine my own.

Such a cute idea!

Thank you for this great tutorial! I would like to make some watercolor flower paintings this summer.

This would be a great add to my kitchen!
